Jayson's Inner Kelly Clarkson
They had some background music playing but I wasn't really even aware of what it was. Maybe country music, I'm not sure. Jayson started singing along and Taylor got all embarrassed and told him to stop. I told her to lighten up, we're on vacation and Daddy is just having a little fun. Taylor said, "Omigosh, Mom, you don't know what it's like!! When you're not home Daddy will bust out into a Kelly Clarkson song for no reason!" Wow. I had no idea. I hope CPS doesn't get wind of that.
Our food was good, nothing spectacular, just good. It reminded me a lot of Gene's Tasty Burger back home but with less grease. Everything I've read about the Mammoth Orange said to make sure you have a milkshake so we got one to go before we left. Omigosh. That was the most fantastic chocolate shake I've ever had. I'm not sure what that girl put in it but the flavor was perfect and the consistency was exactly as it should be...not too thick, not too thin. I hope we can make it back through there on the way home. I want a butterscotch shake.
As soon as you step into some of the rooms in the museum, a recording automatically starts playing and tells you about the things you're looking at. Poor Taylor seemed to forget about that from room to room because every time it happened she jumped 10 feet off the ground then crouched down and covered the back of her head like a 3rd grader in a tornado drill. She's a jumpy little thing but then so is her mama.
It rained pretty good this afternoon but hopefully tomorrow it will be dry enough for us to visit Pugh's Mill Park before heading north to Harrison, AR. I keep looking over my shoulder half expecting to run into Tim & Trish again. Our luck, they'll show up the next time we're caught in an embarrassing situation...or when we're naked. But that won't happen because we've vowed to never be naked again.
